Nokia Mobile Promotion / lottery

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

I got a text to my mobile on September 5th regarding a Nokia Mobile Promotion in Nigeria that i have won a Sweep draw held their.
So, it asked me to contact to this no. +[protected] or africa.[protected] to Dr. Ibrahim AbuBaker.
Well, i did and they asked me money for the DHL, VAT Fee, United Nation Anti- Terrorism and i paid for all this AED 50, 000
Because it sounded so real when i contacted the person and for the e-mails like documents and Certificates.
Secondly, they said they transfered the won prize to Nokia London Head Office because of the late payment and the won prize is making a big issue in Nigeria.
So, there Dr. Anthony Floyd was in charge of the won prize - +[protected], [protected]
I asked him if they could directly transfer the money to my own country. And they agreed, then they asked the VAT Fee, Insurance and Security, Late Charges and finally to the Activation card. I already paid for now AED 30, 000.
It was difficult, very hardly i paid all this with a great stuggle to get the won prize.
They gave me the bank details STERLING TRUST BANK PLC.
About Mrs. Linda Brimgham - [protected]
All this they have mailed us the Certificates, Court issued documents and mails which looks so real with signatures of the President of Nokia..
If such a Big thing is going around the world destroying the company name..Why is there no action taken?
For anymore details, i can forward the mails.
Thank you

    I live in Suriname and I also got a textmessage today from [protected] and phonenumber +2348038657571 that I've won a prize of 250.000 .00GBP my textmessage said:
    "Congratulations!!! Your mobile number have won for 250.000.00 GBP in the NOKIA END OF YEAR PROMO .for your claims contact +2348038657571 And [protected]"
    When I read it I was very cool about it because nobody can win so much money just by owning a nokia mobile phone.The only thing that I did was going to the website of and I saw the complaintsboard.And I laughed, I feel very sad for every one who believe it and reacted on this textmessage.Why I was so cool, is because I often get these kind of emails in my mailbox .These kind of textmessages and emails are from Nigeria. A friend of me had once reacted on an email and lost a lot of money, so I'm aware of these pranks and frauds!
